Nas’ Ex-Wife Gets Closer To Freedom After $400,000 Payoff

Rap veteran Nas‘ ex-wife Kelis has started taking action on her publicized tax debt after reportedly paying nearly $400,000 to the federal government.

Details of Kelis’ hefty payment surfaced online early Monday (September 23) morning.

Kelis is $400,000 closer to tax freedom … she just paid off a huge chunk of her enormous debt, TMZ has learned. As we reported, Kelis owed a grand total of $741,027.59 in back taxes to the State of New York, the State of California, and Uncle Sam as of May. Now that debt has been cut down by more than half. The IRS filed 3 separate federal tax lien releases last month, noting Kelis paid off all her entire federal tax debt … $391,967.36. It’s huge, but she’s not out of the woods — the tax liens for NY and CA (totaling more than $300,000) are still active, and she needs to pay up STAT, or they’ll grow faster than her baby. (TMZ)

Although he did not dish out many details, “God’s Son” said he and Kells have put their past issues behind them last winter.

“We’re back together as friends. We were not friends. We were not the best friends for a long time. It was crazy. We’re friends now. That’s what it is. We’re not together. We’re friends though.” (Hot 97)

In December 2012, rumors of Kells and Nasty Nas hooking back up in Hollywood emerged.

Kelis was seen holding her son Knight in Beverly Hills yesterday, and her ex-husband Nas was also spotted in the area headed to go meet them. Yesterday, “Milkshake” singer Kelis was seen in an extra eclectic outfit at the Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills shopping for shoes. Later on, Kelis was seen walking out of the store (in an interesting pair of leggings ad platform sneakers) with her cutie pie son Knight on her hip. And Knight seems to be following his mom’s fashion tips with his funky orange sneakers, green socks and paperboy cap. Though they weren’t photographed together, sexy rapper Nas was also in Bevelry Hills and was seen taking on his cell and walking up to the same Saks where Knight and Kelis were. You’ll recall that Nas and Kelis have been on vacation together in the past, so maybe he’s in town working on “relationship” things…or he could just be visiting his kids. Either way, good to see them getting along… (The YBF)

Back in October 2012, Nas revealed some urges to romantically link back up with his one-time wife.

Rapper Nas offered his ex-wife Kelis an indecent proposal recently when he sent her a late-night sex text. The star confessed his lusty thoughts to fans during a show in London on Monday night, revealing he let his urges get the better of him. According to, the rap star said, “You know, I text her the other night. I said, ‘Can we make love one more time?’ Seriously!” And he also revealed he’s still reeling from the bitter 2010 bust-up: “(It) still hurts bad. That pain is real, y’all.” He made the comments during a performance of “Bye Bye Baby,” which is believed to be about his ex. (SF Gate)
